Tweak Windows Screensavers 2023


Tweak Windows Screensavers 2023

Windows Vista is completely different from previous versions of Windows and comes with hundreds of new features. Aero, New Explorer, Strong Start Menu, Strong Search, ReadyBoost, and Flip3D are some of the features introduced with Vista.

Along with other eye-catching features, Microsoft has included some good screensavers in Windows Vista. Although Vista allows you to change basic settings for these screensavers, it does not allow you to change advanced settings.

Windows users who want to change advanced native screensaver settings should use third-party screensaver tuning tools, such as Idle Time Editor and Saver Editor screen or manually edit the registry.

Step 2: Enter “regedit”(without quotes) in the newly opened Run dialog box.

Set the value of the above keys between 500000000 and 2000000000. If the above values are not working, add/remove one digit and give it a try.

Users who want to improve Vista and Windows 7 screensavers should check out the screensaver tuning tools mentioned above to improve Bubbles, Aurora, Mystify and Ribbons screensavers. These tools allow you to increase or decrease the number of bubbles in the Bubbles screensaver, set the width and number of lines in Mystify, and choose the ribbon width and number of ribbons in Mystify.
